InterestsSPORTS!! (arena football, HOCKEY! wohoo!, baseball, some basketball), shopping, but not alot, only if I need new clothes every once in a while, Watchin TV (FRIENDS is my all-time fave. show!), Writing (mostly poetry & songs..not too many stories), Chattin (I think I spend too much time online!), Counting down the days until summer vacation :-P, Counting down the days until the next hockey season, Listenin to music (all types pretty much; country, pop, punk/rock (some), not too much rap/hip-hop though)., Meeting new people, Looking for another person with CD that lives within at least 1 1/2 hours of me--NO LUCK YET!, and cooking! (I WANT TO BE A CHEF!-GF of course!) :-D
Since there aren't any other celiacs in my area, there's no way I can date one. hahha But I have found a great guy and he's really supportive. He tries his best to understand my diet and it's cute as heck when he asks questions. He wears one of those green celiac zero band bracelets i bought and he's starting to learn what I can and can't have. Having a bf with celiac disease might seem easier, but it might not be as much fun gettin to know each other or watchin them learn and if you meet someone w/o celiac disease and they don't like you for who you are, then they're not worth your time anyway.
that is so great! okay, can ya do me a favor? what channel is it on? ABC? (I used to watch it, but not anymore, so I forgot) And it comes on @ 7 am central right? Haha..please let me know. Good work everyone! Even if it's only one, it's something!
Hey. I just got finished e-mailing about 20 companies (most of them that were on here already). But I also added about 2 --one news station & one newspaper -- from my area to the list. I e-mail the generic e-mail, but with a msg at the top, explaining how long I've had it, and that it's imporant to me, and to get the msg out...etc...so that it'd be a bit more personal. Well, I hope it works! Good luck everyone!
You might be a celiac if you...
Know what xanthan gum is, and how to pronounce it.
Hehe my friend wants to make me a gluten-free pizza for my bday, and she found a recipe. At skool she was reading it, looked at me funny and said "What's ex-an-an-thum" gum? hahaha. so much fun!
haha! My sisters think I'm sooo lame for watchin the food network- but i wanna be a gluten-free chef, and I love the food network (especially Iron Chef America). I thought I was the only one who watched the food network! that makes me feel so great!
You might be a celiac if the main fast food restaurant you eat at is McDonalds.
You might be a celiac if the only place you eat at is McDonalds.
Ha...the main fast food place I eat at is McDonalds bcuz there's more of a choice there--but I don't like eating fast food that much.
After reading this I have a question now lol...I know hair falls out & thats normal, but my hair seems to fall out more every once in a while, and I do use diff. shampoos...? Do you think there's something in some of my shampoos or it's just normal, and it just so happens my hair falls out more so than others?
Well, I want to be a chef, and have somehow become almost obsessed with the Food Network, so I of course watch Emeril Live. He made fried mozzarella sticks once, with a sauce, but i haven't tried the sauce yet...anyhow, I decided to make the fried mozzarella and adapt it to gluten-free. It turned out delicious! My sis even thinks they're better than restaurant mozzarella sticks. Enjoy..(i've changed up the recipe a lil bit to how i make them!)
Mozzarella Cheese Sticks (as many as you want!)--i usually get a 12 pk. of sticks
1 cup GLUTEN-FREE all purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups GLUTEN-FREE bread crumbs (i use Southern Homestyle Corn Flake
1/2 teaspoon Essence* (see below)
1/2 teaspoon salt
veggie oil, (for frying)
Put the flour in a shallow dish. Combine the milk and eggs in a shallow bowl. Stir together the bread crumbs, Essence, and salt, and place in a shallow dish.
Heat veggie oil about 1 1/2 inches deep in a heavy saucepan (I just use the deep fryer) over medium-high heat to 325 - 330 degrees F.
Dredge the mozzarella in the flour, shake off any excess. Dip in the egg mixture and then the bread crumbs. Place into the hot oil and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. (be careful if the cheese has come out of the crust though bcuz then it will stick to the paper towel! ) Allow mozzarella to stand for 3-5 minutes before servingto allow cheese to melt the entire way through. I usually serve these with Newman's Own Mozzarella Sauce! hehe! It's reallllllllly good! YUM!
* Emeril's ESSENCE (MAKE SURE ALL INGREDIENTS ARE gluten-free OF COURSE!)
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Combine all the ingredients and it's ready to go!
foodnetwork.com is where I got the recipe from! Just adapt the recipes and you never know, it could surprise you how great the food can turn out!
A few wks ago, I had to do a project for my world geography class on Ireland. I also had to bake a traditional food from there. I made Strawberry Bread, but of course adapted the recipe so that it was gluten-free. It turned out SOOOO DELICIOUS! and everyone in class loved it, even though it was gluten-free. they said it all tasted great. My teacher then went on to explain what gluten-free was, for those who I hadn't already told, and said she had tried some gluten-free food before, and it was gross, so that it took a really good chef to adapt a recipe and have it still taste great. I don't fully believe it, but hey! A compliment is a compliment! hehe! Anyways, here's the recipe, it's easy, and yumm! Hope everyone enjoys it!
hehe! these are so hilarious! i couldn't stop laughing! I can't wait til they're on clothing
You might be a celiac if...
You've memorized the "safe" and "forbidden" ingredients lists on this website.
You cry anytime you hear the fries in a restaurant are fried with the chicken tenders.
You are usually the one doing the cooking for any family event.
You are the only one who doesn't forget you have celiac disease. (my family 4gets sometimes, and i sit there with a certain look on my face like "HELLO!?! Think again..")
You loved the list and couldn't stop laughing at it.
You're going to print the list and show it to everyone you know just to see how many will act like they understand it.
You've memorized the health food stores phone numbers in the surrounding cities.
can't wait to see how many more are posted on here. I love them! they're all so great. thanks everyone for making my day!!! the homework i've been doing has really sucked, so this was a nice break! gotta get back to it--
I make my own bread in my bread maker and I use the gluten-free pantry bread mixes. The bread isnt horrible, but it always turns out really spongy and falls to pieces if i bite into it or cut it. And I dont normally buy the gluten-free store bread bcuz its rock solid! Any suggestions? Thanks..
I was recently diagnosed w/ celiac disease, but I'm the only one in my immediate family w/ it (that we know of). But recently I've been wondering if my older sister might have it..some of the things shes experiencing are: frequent headaches, waking up in the middle of the night, sometimes pale, sometimes stomach problems, but the main thing is the headaches. i was just wondering if this was any indication of whether she may or may not have celiac disease. Are headaches normally frequent w/ celiac disease patients? I never really had bad ones...Please let me know what y'all think. Thanks..
